LOCUST (LOcus CUstom Sequence Typer) is a custom sequence locus typer tool for classifying microbial genomes. It provides a fully automated opportunity to customize the classification of genome-wide nucleotide variant data most relevant to biological research.
- Ability to type bacterial genomes using any user-supplied DNA sequence.
- Automated processing from genome sequence download to genotypic classification and phylogenetic inferences.
- User customization enabling the processing of existing or generation of novel, classification schemes.
- Genomic assertions based on genotypic classifications.
